Pondering these things...

I hit something or something hit me.

Hmmm

This world sha. It didn't surprise me anyway because I didn't expect any less. Well with all that has gone on, I still turn to the anchor for my soul as I have always.

There are always different kinds of winds, the wind that brings good things from God comes to supernaturally increase you. When the enemy sees the good coming, he could also send winds that sink ships. What keeps one afloat till God's goodness arrives? His word.

Instead of using a new one, I will use an old one that has worked previously.

I feel so much opposition. When I feel opposition I fight. I just never fight physically. I fight on my knees figuratively. Knowing that my weapons are not carnal, obviously they are spiritual. God says through the 1st century Christians that they are mighty in God (God is in the mix) to the pulling down of strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.

This word is for me and it is easy for me to accomplish because I'm the offspring of God. I'm just like Him. What He can do I can do. Anything He writes in the bible I can do. I can relate with God because I feel no inferiority, fear or condemnation because He has made me righteous. Loads of time I mutter "righteous by faith" several times so I don't forget and think I earn God's love by performance. God simply loves me. Glad about that.

God has given me His word/promise to help me live his divine nature. Today I'm reminding myself of the things that Peter says are needed or should be added.

The word of God in practice, hmmm. After practicing God's word in the field I need reminders so I don't just copy other Christian under assumptions.

Here's what Peter says I need to add to my operating in divine nature so that I am fruitful.

"And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue"

I should be diligent. The diligent worker will rule. I should be diligent about my spiritual life also. It shouldn't be left to chance. I should also add virtue to my faith.

Thank God I have faith (Rom 12:3) since God has given everyone a measure of faith and I have mine. God is just. What is that virtue that I should have? The TLB (The Living Bible) translates the word "virtue" to goodness.
So even when I'm angry I can't do badness, I'm to intentionally add goodness. Okay, agreed. Abi I want to follow Jesus. I do. I made up my mind 15 years ago. I still choose Jesus daily instead of convenience or compromise.

"...and to virtue knowledge;..."
I am to add knowledge to goodness. Some people say knowledge puffs up and this is true. That love is better than knowledge. I agree but 1Peter 1 gives a direct instruction to add knowledge to goodness. So even when I practice goodness whether I feel like or not, I'm to add knowledge and I'm willing. I'm curious by nature. I love learning new things. I love reading. I read my bible. Love it. I read Christian literature from specific authors. Love reading Kenneth Hagin books. I had a pastor friend one time, our friendship was sustained by me wanting to read his books. Read many Kenneth Hagin's books. His books are vivid for me.

 "..And to knowledge temperance;..."
You know when you think you have something mastered. I am still increasing in self control as I live life daily. Listening to a black female musician whose song is made of "O Lord Jesus, Stand by me". It reflects my state of mind. So self control is being tested and growing. It is important for been fruitful and not barren.

"...and to temperance patience;..."
Patience is the ability to stay in one place believing the same thing come what may. I've taken my position and I won't be shifting it. Faith needs patience, I thought I could relax but what was it my college pastor, either lie down and play dead or fight with the weapons God made you with. It is a life of faith and we spend it fighting the good fight of faith. I am in. No going back.

"...and to patience godliness;..."
Godliness. When you've been in a crowd and everyone is jostling pushing you here and there looking for space, as the world can sometimes be, you can toss godliness in the bin and just imitate the agbero's attitude. God says no. If you want to be fruitful, even if others are being ungodly and employing the devil's tactics, I don't want you to. Be godly. That's what it means to be separated unto me. You can't take the easy road. NO

"...And to godliness brotherly kindness;..."
You will think the other things will be difficult for me. I see relating with people as difficult. I wish they were all mannequins then I wouldn't feel their judgment so terribly. If they don't matter to me, their opinion doesn't matter either. Why can't I separate it? God says they matter. I still maintain my core. I can't run myself ragged. I can be kind to them. One of the first lessons the Spirit of God taught me was kindness so I will be kind. The virtuous woman, even though I don't expect to fulfil all in a day had on her lips, the law of kindness. I will do that. If it will please I choose to do this and I won't insult them in my mind either. I will do it right.

"..and to brotherly kindness charity". 
After all this block buster amazing things, I can walk in love. It is easy o since it is in my spirit. The Holy Spirit has shed the love of God abroad in my heart. Yes He has. I can walk in love because God's love is in me enough to give out to my world.

For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. - 2 Peter 1:5-8

I am fruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ because everything that should be added I have added. Awesome.

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. - 1 Peter 3:12

This is my promise for the week and I am activating it by muttering it over me. Expecting God's goodness today like never before.

Thank You God for leading me and speaking to me. I'm grateful. I'm grateful for your word in John 10:4-5 that your sheep hear Your voice and follow you but we will NEVER follow a stranger but will run away because we don't know the strangers voice.

Ponderings

Old enough in the faith to guide my faith and love by the power of the Holy Ghost.

Doing right isn't easy on the flesh
It is easy with the help of the Holy Ghost
It is do-able

I always ask myself what is the love response
What is the motivation?
Then what is the faith response?

This keeps me in track.

God works with your hopes and dreams
Sometimes He gives you His own
To even hear Him when He speaks, you should have your own.

My siblings and I always say, this world is more than meets the eye.
I believe it with my whole heart.

It has been a while since I pondered on the things in my heart
No politically correct for me
I try
But it always seems like I am living somehow less when I'm coasting on that mode.
This world is more than meets the eye
My confidence is that I trust in the One who holds me firmly
He might be invisible
But His instructions have led me thus far
And I know that as long as I follow His guide
I am not lost.

To be lost is to be without His voice, His guide and His protection
I have known the fickleness of the world, of people even of the cloth
I have known these things enough to know that all other ground is sinking sands
To know that outside His own will I am prey to the whims and caprices of man
But inside His will always, I will amaze and confound my enemies time and again.

I have known the self righteousness of my long winded prayers
And the sincerity and dependency of short prayers like: God, you are soveriegn, have Your way.
I have known the comfort of 'Be still and know that I am God
And the mockery of those who think they know better
And imagine that God leaves something as important as writing my story in the hands of mortals.

I believe in the God who works behind the scenes
I believe in the God who rules in the affairs of men
I believe in the God who makes tomorrow better than today
I believe in the God who makes better plans
I believe in the God who calls, equips, empowers and goes along with His own.

I believe in the good God
His judgment is not towards me
Isaiah doesn't tell me that
His love and mercy and grace and favour is towards me all day long
Yes I believe it
I don't know how but I do
I think that Fathers and Daughters are that way
After you have walked together for a while, God's character is so certain, His actions can be known
They are good.

I don't doubt God's love
No, His character is sure.
Just to know He loves me so makes me know how blessed I am
How can I be ashamed of His gospel
I witness Him when I want to and when I don't feel like
He's an awesome God
An awesome God He is

I pledge my allegiance again and again only to find that His covenant stands sure
Me and Him
What blasphemy I would have said years ago
But He is my Yahweh
My buffer
The strength in me
The good in me
The God in me
The joy in me
My guarantee

Why is this God so good?
How can others know Him
Speechless O!
The only One who can surprise me time and again
I am grateful for His presence
I trust in Him more than my hands that type
He's more real to me than what I see
Glad
Grateful
Filled with the fullness of God.

My sister always says God is amazing o
That He raised His deliverer amongst enemies
Moses grew up amongst enemies
This God is able to do anything.

On Christ I stand
That's the essence of this post.
I am not standing on anything material
Or anything my head can figure out
I am not standing on human resources
No crutches for me
I stand on Christ.

He still speaks and thankfully I still listen for the voice of God in the cool of the day as Adam did.

Before the fall...

Too much talk.

My latest post

I had much to blog about. I had to sort through and pick just one thing that could communicate a particular message.

Browsing through Adedoyin's blog helped.

I saw this.



Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

I decided to do what she did and score myself.

Love suffers long and is kind:
I am still kind by the grace of God. It is a choice and the nature of God so I agree. Do I suffer long? I have set some limits but when God says, "my friend". I jejely suffer long instead of crying out against perceived wrongs. Abeg without the spirit of God I am a quiet person. What keeps me loving and acting right is the influence of the Holy Spirit.

Love does not envy:
I don't have a bone for envy. I can look and say that is nice or not nice but I don't have a bone that can envy by the grace of God. It is not a challenge.

Love does not parade itself:
I don't parade myself but I parade my abilities sometimes and I know they are good. I learned early in life that "a gift makes room for you". I know a lot of people interpret it as buying a gift for someone, sometimes that is just backhanded and underhanded bribery but what do I know? Different strokes. Your gift, what God has gifted you with will bring you before the kings/queens of great nations, keep at it.

is not puffed up:
I am not puffed up o, just quiet, at times and then sassy. Others may have a different opinion though because I have found that when you don't talk much people can use their imagination and create their own characters straight out of their head. I do the same thing. I am just not as unkind to be sharing stuff that I created. I don't believe I am puffed up at all. 

does not behave rudely:
I am never rude. I just exit the building instead of being rude. Wetin be the gain sef. 

does not seek its own:
I don't seek my own. I don't do selfish. Naturally and supernaturally I am not selfish with stuff. I don't share my food sha. I would rather buy you a plate of food which is kind than share my food with you. Habit.

is not provoked:
I wish I could be provoked. When something provokes me before my new nature, I would open my mouth and be creative with words. You will never forget it but I would. Being someone who is not vengeful I forget immediately. That is my secret weapon actually. I never get angry. Instead I make plans.

thinks no evil:
My obsession. I heard a rumor about me once, they said she is obsessive. They don't know how much. I am pure focus when I set my mind on something. I attended fellowship one day and the word of God pierced through my spirit, soul and body. That day I started changing my mind and overcoming fears step by step. It became an obsession for me to think right. All I heard was Phillipians 4:8, we were asked to meditate on that scripture. I did it with a vengeance because I am very focused on determined on whatever I set my mind on. Till date, I get a word and put it in front of my eyes and my day follows that word, always. The obsession they speak of is an illusion. You would have to know me for more than three months to believe me though.

does not rejoice in iniquity:
Thank God for the grace of God. I cannot be happy at iniquity. I must quench it with grace. I am fully persuaded that if anyone comes to me and gets an earful, even if the word doesn't go to word when they hear, it is a seed that is growing and soon the life that has heard the word from me will begin to change until they become what God wants them to be. This is my conviction.

bears all things:
I have borne a lot and can still bear more only because the presence of God is always with me. I sing because God wants to hear me. I am covenanted to speak only words that edify. I don't know how faithful I have been to that but most times I do it unconsciously: speaking right, speaking life, I mastered it so that with no pressure or under pressure, only goodness proceeds from my lips. They once used to be sharp words but I prefer living with a bridled tongue, God is well pleased when my tongue is bridled.

believes all things:
I believe so much. I think it is a gift. I can see the sunny side of everything. I believe in prophetic speakings. I am having a conversation with you and though you may think I am just speaking, I am actually being prophetic. The only reason they are not empty words is because I have God's Spirit in me. Some people even used to try and sell me lies but thank God for the Holy Ghost. He sees into the thoughts and the intents of the heart. He's awesome. He is also a revealer of secrets.

hopes all things:
I believe in hoping and waiting. You know, after you have used faith, if you don't have patience, you will be unable to reap your harvest. Without hope though, you will not get faith.

endures all things:
I hate enduring. If you were a worldly person, you would call me melancholy. They are great at faithfulness, loyalty, enduring etc. I get a pass mark in all areas and by the Spirit of God, I master my weaknesses. 

Would you like to do this also? 

I love measuring myself according to God's standard of love. It fills up all the holes.

If ISIS are successful at online recruiting, what is our excuse?

ISIS are into online recruiting.


To live is Christ
To die is gain

Which of the two happens, as a believer you are always alive. When you hear of anything like this that happens, don't cry.

Be that much more determined to win a soul to Christ. When a soul is truly won for Christ, whatever the enemy does is just another opportunity to bring glory to God.

Have a great day and stay conscious that someone needs to hear about the Lord Jesus, His love, His glory, His power and that redemption of man has been accomplished and that all may freely cash their cheques.

Confess Jesus as Lord.

My heart loves this

I used to hate submission until I discovred that was the safest place to be in

Have you read my article on Connect Nigeria on Money?
I woke up to see a picture of Heather’s blog and her picture was on submission. Of course I stole the picture and it is credited to Heather.



It just reminds me of how I wrestled against submission and submitting and why the woman must always be submitting to everyone. Why can’t she take care of herself? After all she is educated and independent.

I listened to all the scriptures that backed the truth of submission and what broke through me was that resisting authority is like resisting or fighting God and that a Christian should not be in that position. At all times I am for the kingdom of God in words and action and that includes not speaking against men of God. God make me a faithful steward over the words of my lips so that my conscience would be clear towards you.
#SubmissionThings

It was “hit and miss” for a bit because I was used to making my decisions for me. I had been independent for as long as I can remember. Now I have met this great God whom I love and I love Him because “Why would He do such awesome things for me, more than I can imagine and I wouldn’t love Him?” It was not as payment o because I was a stickler for perfection. If it were payment I would draw back. I regret nothing and I owe no one nothing, after all I am always right.
I learned to submit to God and to His word. I am still learning daily.
I learned to yield to the Holy Ghost.
I learned to yield to walking in love. I am still learning.
I learned to submit to my parent’s big fight against me. Story for another day.
I learned to submit to my pastors, in the Lord. Story for another day too. I had to suppress my mouth so much and surrender to the holy Ghost instructions constantly to win.

When it comes to single women, you submit to your parents and to your pastors. You are not to submit to other men or boyfriends and they are not responsible to lead you. They may offer advise as friends but they are not responsible in the eyes of God to take the leadership role in your life. You are to submit to your friends to maintain peace but not t submit to be led by them even though they can give you counsel. Godly counsel only binds you though (Psalms 1). You are to submit to older women to learn from them but godly counsel only binds you also.

When it comes to married women, the next highest person’s authority you come under after God is your spouse. Be sure that you can surrender to his leadership before marriage to him, after all is said and done, trust his leadership. Submit in the Lord.

When you are in this position, there is power on your head and you have power with God. Pray daily and cultivate a relationship with God. Here is where you influence things. You are not subject to the whims and caprices of man because of God’s sovereignty. Pray to God, pray over your spiritual life, pray for the authority that is over you. Pray for your family. Pray more than you talk. Pray and talk with God about everything. Ask for favour with the authority over you, ask for grace to walk in peace always and to please God in all that you do and say and think. You need the power of God to please God second to having a willingness to please God.

Stay in that position. Temptation will come from all around you to shift you out of that position. As soon as you notice you are wrongly position. Repent and return to God and ask for His help to stay obedient and then as much as you want to complain or murmur or argue, change those things to tongues, speak in tongues and ask the Holy Ghost to help you remain rightly positioned and help you maintain peace and help you pray. 

Ask the Holy ghost for power to pray, power to obey, power to speak the word above everything else that is fighting to have forefront above God. Give God first place. Put on the armour of God and the good fight of faith. You will win if you stay focused on Jesus. Let nothing and no one distract you.

Live a life which pleases God. When you please God, you will know. He will always show up to comfort you and lead you in the paths of righteousness.

Life is about getting better everyday.

I believe that the best life to live is the life Jesus gave.
I believe that success is about doing what God has asked of you and being positioned where He has asked you to stay.

Today as I research for a lovely article I will be sharing later today, I think you would love to see this article I saw about Kerry Washington. Read it here.

Photo Credit: Marie Claire

I love the way Kerry carries herself and her fashion sense is smart, chic and modest. She goes to church at the Potters House, is married to a Nigeria and her mother in law names her Amarachi. If I like you, I like you, no two ways. Is that even a phrase? In the interview sha, she came across as smart, engaging and upwardly mobile and she brought a gift for the person interviewing her.

What? Sometimes I just think "Tess, you are so razz, where are your manners?" I should be going out and bringing gifts for people even if only because of courtesy but it would be great if my heart was in it cos then that would be graciousness. Right. Those are my dreams, who I am. Help me O God.

Read my last article on how to win three digital cameras. Read it here
Photo Credit: Google Images


The camera game is getting traction but not as much traction as I would expect. I don't get it Nigerian youths, why would you prefer N 1, 000 to a digital camera? You guys are crazy o. Please get involved. I cannot begin talking about all of the ways that a digital camera can change your business if you are a fashion blogger, regular blogger, an entrepreneur or just a professional house wife, there is honor in all labour. 

Word of the week:

If you follow me on Facebook, you have probably seen it already but it is still my word for the week/month.

"Yet not I..."

"I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live yet not I but Christ lives in me, the life I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the son of God who died and gave Himself for me"

There is so much in this statement but let me just pick some out. When you pray, don't ever think that you are struggling to muster up faith because you are loved. Because you are loved by God, you are not using your faith but the faith of the son of God who died and gave Himself for you. So you always have access to God who loves you. Just talk to Him...

Day or night, he is waiting to listen to you and help you feel better in your soul so that you can have peace to do the things He asks you to do. So that is all I will be focusing on this day. 

Cheers

PS
Also, thank you everyone that came for the business fair, it was a huge success. Looking forward to seeing you there next year. Meanwhile, practice, practice all that you learned in your business so that it will grow so that we will give testimony next year, it is not for play o, it is for life.

I was born for this time... and "Do you want to win a digital camera?"

I love all things writing, reading and sharing information. I had a great weekend. So many changes up on the horizon by the grace of God.

I am thankful for my dreams/visions. There is nothing like living without a dream. Blogging helped me express my dreams just fine. I woke up today and rushed to work not totally all together (forgive me for slipping up) any looking good at all was up to the Holy Ghost o, I should have been washed out considering the kind of weekend I had. Thank God for the Holy Ghost, He makes me look good, I cannot take the credit for anything.

I got to work and saw what my sister from another mother put up. She is this amazing writer called Francesca Onomarie. It is about inspiring women. I am so into developing the Nigerian woman that even if I don't like you, I will support you. Na so e be for me. Read about the women here. They were so many and I was glad about it.

Photo Credit: From the article in the link above.
I found this blog while browsing through Sisiyemmie's blog. I am subscribed to so many newsletters you will pity my gmail address. In case you don't have it, it is tessadoghor@gmail.com. I saw this silly contract that women were asked to sign. I wish I could just compare it with the men's own but why bother. The solution to that thingy though is to find your identity in Christ and fulfill your destiny. I can't dedicate my life to fighting battle that won't end. To read the letter, click on the link and see the contracts women signed back in the day.

Money won't make you happy but you need to be financially empowered to establish God's kingdom on earth. I listen to 5 messages that teach on why you should add value to this earth and be remunerated and how the purpose of money is to establish the covenant, every week. I take renewing my mind seriously and so should you.

Read a guy's version that talks about women having changed or not changed in the last 60 years or so. Have they? My grandma used to say yes, all the time. I believe that we have, only not as fast as we would expect.  

Want to win a digital camera? Do so by clicking here. Fulfill the criterion listed and in three weeks time you get to be the proud owner of a digital camera.

There's a writers conference coming up around the corner. You have no idea how I searched the internet for writer's gatherings so that I could fulfill my calling and I found none. So since I know that there are so many other people like me (Lol, as unique as I am but seriously I tell the truth and no lie, I am unique) I am putting the word out, a writers conference is around the corner so keep your nose to the ground so that the train doesn't leave you.

On wholeness of the soul: I just want to put in that your heart is so very important in what God wants to do in your life. Don't let it get hard. Protect it. Guard it. Forgive. Don't carry anger and resentment in your heart. If it is difficult, ask the Holy Ghost to help you. I have been doing a lot of weeding lately abi the Holy Ghost has been doing a lot of weeding, on my own, I couldn't have made it and so I am very grateful that He is still interested in working on my very weeded out heart. It is in much better shape.

Don't think I didn't fight it? BUT the Holy Ghost and I have an agreement. He is allowed to break through my defenses and take out what doesn't help me and put in what does, for my own good. My early Christianity, I made so many promises and so many vows. You are allowed to correct me, you are allowed to lead me. Stop me when I am going my own way. Don't hesitate to get involved.

When He starts telling me what to do, I get mad but ultimately His leading always turns out to be for my good. So Holy Spirit, take the lead, by grace I will follow. I am a sheep (not goat). I follow God's voice. 

Have you read my novel?

Is this responsible?



This link is disgusting

Nigerians have their share of this sickening attribute

Sani Yerima: His divorce and remarriage to another young girl



Former Kogi State Governor married a 12 year old too


Does this show the ugly side of sharia laws or what?

I know that I don't want my kids being married off at the age of 12. Just read the horrible things happening that sharia law supports.

Please help us and don't let anyone islamize Nigeria?
Fight for your freedom

If you let them have their way, you will not even be able to complain about anything you will be in bondage.

She's every woman and none... not a poem!


She this...
She that...
She all perfect
She not perfect
It seems to give me a headache

Yes, I know character matters
I am working at it
Yes I know virtue matters
He is working on that

What does the finished product look like?
I don’t know cos I am still headed there
What does God want?
I don’t know yet cos so many voices
So many opinions
Seems like deja vu all over again

I don’t know it all
But I will know what matters when the time is right
Right now I just need to slide out from under the weight of everyone’s expectations
And to rise up
I am awake and alert and I guess the series of circumstances that brought me to this place are of His making
It is all good, it is a good place rather

It is like old times again
Golden girl, she will do everyone proud
Can I just do me proud?
Can I just do God proud?
Cos I will never succeed at doing everyone proud
The list of expectations is different for each person

I don’t do very well under pressure or scrutiny for that matter
Scrutiny is at best fault finding, at worst, love, no I don’t think so
It doesn’t really matter anyway; I wonder why I cared so much instead of just letting go
I am learning but really only One person’s expectations matter
Cos for everyone else it is always changing
I refuse to be on any one’s pedestal because it is just a replay of the heroes past
They place you on a pedestal only to bring you crashing on a whim
You are only just a chess piece most times in the games humans play
Cos no matter how much we deny it, our humanity gets the better of us a lot of times

In the eyes of God though, you are one and only, apple of His eyes
He won’t change His mind tomorrow on a whim and caprice, He is that constant
It took me a while to get it but I do now, I truly do
Just want to be me, don’t want to be anyone’s mirror image
I want to be the ‘me’ God sees when He looks at me.

I know of eternal life, I have perceived it
Still in spite of the new creation that I am
When I place my arm on my hand or my head, what I feel is very human
Yet eternity is just as tangible; as least to me
God is just as real to me so when all is said and done I run to your throne and say
Why on earth won’t you speak to me, to my heart?
You have no answer for me but in the stillness of the day I place my hand on my heart
And you are there.
It is no poetry either
I wonder, what does all of this mean? I hate not being in control
At least I like to imagine that I control some things, lol!

At least the Most High the sovereign One is innately good and in that I find safety
The heart of men, hmmm Only Jesus knows jare
The rest of us, we are safe in His hands
O what wretched souls that we can be when we don’t consider Him
I would be lost without Him but gratefully I am not
I am safe and secure in Him!

I am learning to be silent again and in the midst of the silence to listen...

I am certain that this is my path though and since it is, it must mean that I have all that I need to walk in it because He always provides, of that I am sure
He’s a provider after all and He’s promised that I will never lack any good thing.
So it seems that sounds like faith, tis a good place

You’re the leader O Lord, I am tired of wrestling with You, can I just rest in You?
Let me know which steps to take and I will do them by Your grace

#InwardWitness

This is not a poem, tis just thoughts

They deserve to be blogged about


Some people start making waves ever before they have a chance to invent something
Social media will make these girls famous today. I am not sure they counted on the kneeling down with their NYSC certificates would make them stars. Social media has decided that today  they are worth it.

A friend from college made a joke of how they were doing what GMB should have done since. I laughed of course.

Did I tell you about an amazing girl that the Holy Ghost led to Haiti? Awesome story on "Faith Channel", she made my day. Well, she told the story of how she was crying and crying and confused and couldn't understand why she was in Haiti, she spoke of how God led her to a little girl who was trying to kill a bird for food.

Long and short of the story she went to America and when she came back, she miraculously began speaking Haiti language and everyone understood her. I have always believed in miracles long before I was born again and the things of God always amaze me. Read more

Wonders of wonders, she has a blog and a site where you can help make some people's lives better. I call it a kingdom offering. Here is the site here.

Did I tell you that you can win printers and flashdrives?

Have a great weekend. I will. My weekend is packed till Sunday afternoon. No rest this week, it will have to be next week then.



Life is just a whirlwind right now, a whirlwind of good things.

Faith Nuggets: 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.[a]

So I am expecting great surprises...because so is everyone born of the Spirit and I am born of the Spirit so I cannot be predicted.

Just thinking...

Random things going through my mind
Not always coordinated but always creative, mind blowing!

So much is going on in the world and no matter how I try to ignore, as someone in the Arts, I always take notice and I want to express it in some way. 

I don't know what I would have done were I her but this little girl inspired me this morning. She has just lost her home but she wants to forgive the militants.


We can all learn a lesson from her. Instead of focusing on what she lost, she's focused on the God who can restore all.

I love blogging and there are some blogs that I stalk all the time. One of utmost value is this one here. I noticed that it is always edifying. You can feel virtue flow from it if you are a believer in that kind of thing and I am. I believe that all Christians based on what they are focusing on can have virtue flowing from them. Let's go there: Hajel's Musings

I read it and I just know that learning to rule your tongue and to have the mind of Christ as you renew daily is one of the greatest things that you can ever do.

I read a book recently. It is called Bridge to Haven by Francine Rivers. 

Buy it here

It helped me remember that choosing to believe in the invisible is a personal choice. By the grace of God, I don't want to live any other way. It is the higher life that is much talked about. The beatitudes. Let me get the meaning.

Do you know who the speakers at the business fair are? Me either. Lol. I kid. You can find them here and all the guests at the tweet chats that have been holding every Thursday. You can find them using these hastags #SMENigeria and #CNBizFair

Me and all these my causes and my work. The world is changing everyday and part of it pleases me while part of it saddens me. Lord help us. Cause us to be sensitive to your move and to be alert to your spirit. Help us to be led by our spirit and not our physical senses. help me live that higher life indeed. #Grace

There is a tweet chat happening in one hour. Join in and meet the technology company that gets you taxis at the snap of your fingertips. At good prices. I say so. And I am Ijebu when it comes to paying taxi fare. I want to get the best bargain possible because they are eating out of my car fund. 

Join them via #CNBizFair or via these two handles @connectnigeria and @uber_Lagos.www.twitter.com/uber_lagos

Ever been to a court?


I have not.
I did pass by it though.

It shows a woman in gold
She holds a sword in one hand and a pair of scales in the other
The sword represents judgment and the pair of scales represent mercy
It should represent fairness but life isn't fair, will never be, but God is merciful
Mercy is better than fairness
With mercy He judges you by His righteousness (if you have Jesus)
and by His judgment you are qualified for every good thing in him

I am still an idealist about many things
Both are meant to be applied
Justice and judgment I mean

These last few weeks I have been focused on politics and doing that I have seen the true side of many people. Can't say that I am surprised. I refuse to be cynical though
I have been insulted (I can handle that), maligned, the latest one is bullying
I can't say that I wasn't warned. One of my pastors warned me, I was going to do what s/he said but I believe that I should speak  out. Nothing happens by chance. God is still in charge of all things even politics. My mom has been begging me to take it easy, she say she knows Nigeria better than what they are saying because of history (Dele Giwa was bombed, wasn't he?).

I will take it wasn't in about 6 weeks time, other than that, I promise to be careful in my movement, get home early, follow the leading of the Spirit and to trust God. 

I pray that God's will be done.

I will vote. I have had my PVC since November, I suffered to get it. Did my homework et al. 

Here's how Lagos looks, stickers, fliers, bill boards, boards everywhere. We cannot take a break until the elections are over. Our minds are being assailed by good things, bad things, all things politics. This is the way it always goes, has always been. I pray that God has some good surprises for us this year. Something unusual.
